Silly me, I thought there would be some sort of database of ground nesting birds in Southern California, specific to Chaparral. I haven't been able to find anything listing out ground nesting birds, let alone anything specific to any geographic area. I know Juncos and California Quail are ground nesting. I'm looking for ones that we need to be on the lookout for while we are weed whipping. Just found out White Crowned Sparrows are also ground nesters. Does anyone have any info? I am happy to research anything.
